Thank you for the speedy response Larry!

I'll investigate this possibility a little more.  One thing I should point
out is that we have disabled the Computer Browser and Server services to
allow for NetBios drive mappings across an ssh tunnel.  Perhaps those two
are causing the grief?  It's odd though.  If that is the problem, how are
the local machines I'm working on unaffected?  As I said in my earlier
email, they're all built to spec.

I also don't think it's a matter of certain services not starting up in time.
Many times during my efforts I've tried to start the sshd service and all the
other services have had 30-60 minutes to start.  Perhaps this feedback may
give you some insight into something more.  =)

I will try re-enabling the Computer Browser and Server services to see if
I have any luck and I will continue to investigate further service
dependencies.  If you have anything further or anyone else in your support
department has any feedback, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Larry!
